Team Owen Donald
In honor of Owen Fundraiser
Thank you for visiting our Owen Donald team fundraising page!
As most of you may know or for those of you who do not know; myself, Brooke and my fiancé, Adam lost our son, Owen March 16, 2017 at 34 weeks 4 days gestation. He was born silently but his voice spoke volumes to those who knew him. Owen will forever be loved beyond words and always remembered in the hearts of family and friends.
We will be doing the Let's Not Be Still Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Walk/Run put on by the Star Legacy Foundation in honor of Owen for the 2nd year. The Star Legacy Foundation is an amazing nonprofit that works with individuals, medical professionals, organization and hospitals in order to raise awareness, support and research on pregnancy and infant loss. If anyone is interested in joining us on this walk/run you are most definitely welcome to join our Team Owen Donald! If you have any questions about that please feel free to contact myseld or Adam.
In honor of Owen and this amazing foundation I am trying to individually raise $100 for the almost 35 weeks I had the honor of carrying my son. Last year of 2017 we earned $476 as a team & I am truly hoping to reach $500 or surpass that this year! If you can donate every cent or dollar counts for this cause that is so near and dear to our hearts.
1 out of 160 pregnancies in the U.S. ends in a stillbirth, about 26,000 yearly across the nation. Nobody deserves to feel the pain of going through pregnancy or infant loss I will continue to support every foundation, organization or research project in order to help other families that have or are going through these situations. Please help me to help others!
Donating through this website is simple, fast and secure and is fully tax-deductible.
Many thanks for your support—and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to help our cause!
